Rewari (Har): Claiming that "anti-people"
policies of UPA government at the Centre has led to
increasing disenchantment among electorate, Indian National
Lok Dal President Om Prakash Chautala has said that Congress
would pay the price in the upcoming polls.

Addressing a party meeting at Musepur village near here
yesterday, Chautala predicted that in all the five states
going to polls, including UP and Punjab, the Congress would
fail to get majority and non-Congress governments would be
formed.

"People are disenchanted with the Congress-led UPA as
during its rule corruption and price rise have been
the main achievements. Voters would shun the party and vote
for non-Congress parties," the former state chief minister
said.

Accusing the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government in Haryana
of pursuing "anti-farmer" policies, Chautala alleged that in
the name of establishing SEZs, the state government was
exploiting the peasantry while enabling big builders to reap
rich dividends.
